This comprehensive anthology includes more than 20,000 quotations, listed both by the person or source and under thematic headings. In addition to a wide selection of classic and well-known entries, the book contains hundreds of bon mots from all areas of contemporary society, including television, radio, music, advertising and the cinema. To ensure that the right quotation can be found easily, the editor has arranged the entries under thousands of thematic and biographical headings. In addition, key-word indexes allow the user to find exactly the right phrase quickly and easily, while cross-references under the thematic headings suggest related topics that may be of interest.
